Angel wings and Gary Leonard *

Photographer Gary Leonard took pictures this weekend of anyone who wanted to stand in front of angel wings painted by Colette Miller on the security shutters of the Regent Theatre downtown. John Rabe of KPCC went to observe — and pose — and he reports that Gary "photographed street people, activists, mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti, an aging public radio host, an unborn child, and many more." More at his Off-Ramp page.
